REVIEW: Textastrophe: A Collection of Hilariously Catastrophic Text Pranks by Matt Andrews


Once upon a time, prank phone calls were the best way to procrastinate, but in 2015, they’re so passé. Instead, Matt Andrews has mastered the art of prank texting. What happens when you offer to barter two sub-sandwiches for a used motorcycle? Who do you call when you want to build a mysterious man cave in your basement? What do you do if you need a knight in shining armor to deliver you to your high school reunion? If you've ever left a "contact me" pull-tab at your local grocery or posted an ad on Craigslist and received insane and unbelievable text messages in response, Andrews is very likely to blame. We'd be mad at him if we could stop laughing long enough to hit "send" on the exceptionally witty come back we thought of...too bad he's already moved on to his next target and deleted us from his phone, now only to be remembered in these pages of his laugh-out-loud funny book.

The pranks calls we loved in 1990 meet up with 2015 technology in this entertaining book. Follow along as well-meaning merchants and other unsuspecting targets are baited into hilarious reactions to absurd text requests and propositions. An easy read for mindlessly paging through when you just want a quick chuckle or it is even funnier when shared with friends. Certainly not a Pulitzer Prize winner but I give it 3 stars just for being fun. Who doesn't need more laughs in their life?
